Back and better than ever, this casual restaurant, bar, and boat rental facility, located in the heart of Forest Park on Post-Dispatch Lake, is like no other place in St. Louis. The Boathouse has undergone major renovations thanks to a gift from the Jack Taylor family. In the warm weather enjoy leisurely boat rides, lakeside patio dining, cold drinks, live music, and beautiful sunsets. In the cold weather enjoy indoor dining for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch…or just come and enjoy a glass of wine or a hot chocolate while relaxing around the large stone wood-burning fireplace. http://www.boathouseforestpark.com/
MoKaBes Cafe at 3606 Arsenal Street (just west of Grand)has a wonderful outdoor seating area where people with pups can sit and enjoy the day. Several waterbowls are always in evidence. NOTE: Its pronounced Mocha-bees.
